IBM puts Smarter Buildings research into practice
Optimising energy and water usage and enhancing the working environment for IBM researchers by analysing data from thousands of sensors throughout the building.
IBM saw an opportunity to put its latestSmarter Buildings research into practice by turning its Smarter Cities Technology Centre in Ireland into a “Living Lab”. 2,500 sensors provide real-time data on heating and cooling systems, lighting, water and electricity meters, footfall and motion within the 35,500 sq ft building, enabling the creation of comprehensive energy usage models. Real-time reports provide deeper insight into how the space is being used, how the infrastructure is performing, and where resource usage can be optimised.
